"BROCKMIRE" RECOGNIZED BY THE NATIONAL BASEBALL HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM... REALLY

IFC Donates Jim Brockmire's Sport Coat and Microphone from Critically-Acclaimed Comedy Series

NEW YORK - April 18, 2018 - IFC today announced that the iconic plaid sport coat and microphone from the original comedy series, Brockmire, starring Hank Azaria as boozy broadcaster Jim Brockmire, have been accepted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum's collection and are now on display in Cooperstown, N.Y. Produced by Funny or Die, Brockmire Season 2 premieres on IFC Wednesday, April 25 at 10PM. Tyrel Jackson Williams and Amanda Peet co-star.

Hank Azaria and his TV persona Jim Brockmire both shared their thoughts on being recognized by the National Baseball Hall of Fame:

Said star Hank Azaria, "I am 53 years old, my dream of being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame as a pitcher for the New York Mets officially died two years ago. This is definitely the next best thing."

Said Jim Brockmire, "It's always been a dream of mine to be in Cooperstown, so much so that I once hid a small plaque listing my accomplishments in the handicap stall of the second floor bathroom. This honor means more to me obviously, but I am still not taking down my toilet plaque."

Brockmire follows Jim Brockmire (Azaria), a famed major league baseball announcer who suffered a notorious public breakdown after stumbling upon his wife's infidelity - a breakdown so bad that "Brutal Brockmire" became a viral internet meme. Season 1 began a decade later, as Brockmire looked to reclaim his career, reputation, and love life. He eventually found happiness calling games for the Morristown Frackers, the underdog minor league baseball team, alongside his girlfriend Jules (Peet).

Now one year later, Season 2 kicks off with Brockmire chasing an opportunity to call games in New Orleans. He enjoys new found success as a top podcaster with his show "Brock Bottom," while living with his co-dependent friend Charles (Williams)... and partying harder than ever. Still trying to still reclaim his career as a major league sportscaster, Brockmire cannot resist the temptations of the Big Easy, while pining for the girl he left behind in Morristown, PA and struggling to find his purpose in life.

Brockmire originally appeared as a viral short video on the award-winning comedy website Funny Or Die. All episodes of Season 2 are directed by Mo Marable and the series is executive produced by Azaria, Joel Church-Cooper, Marable, Tim Kirkby and Funny Or Die's Mike Farah and Joe Farrell. Brockmire will return for two more seasons, as IFC recently announced, slated to air in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
